ODORLESS BUDS CAN THEY BE OF GOOD QUALITY?
Without a doubt, the smell of cannabis is one of its most characteristic and recognizable traits. But can odorless buds be of good quality? Should we let ourselves be carried away by the aroma? We will try to clarify this doubt taking into account that cannabis is a plant that never ceases to amaze us and, each variety, is a world in itself.
THE SMELL IS IMPORTANT BUT NOT DECISIVE
As we have already commented on several occasions, one of the most important points to differentiate between a quality flower and another poor quality, is the smell. When you open the jar or the bag, you will immediately recognize that particular pungent aroma so exclusive to cannabis and that always transports us to pleasant moments.
On the other hand, when you open the container and you find odorless buds, we might suspect that perhaps the flowers are a bit old, not well preserved or not of the expected quality. We will clarify this last point in the next section, since there are some high-quality varieties whose smell is somewhat milder but, on the other hand, their flavor is exceptional.
High-quality CBD flowers are most often characterized by an intense fragrance, a distinctive, captivating scent and should stand out from any other scent. A strong and rich aroma is the biggest indicator of a high terpene content. Terpenes are produced by a wide variety of plants and are the primary components of resins and essential oils.
The combination of certain terpenes is what produces a particular aroma (floral, citric, fruity …). The pungency of CBD flowers is also directly related to their potency. Therefore, in front of odorless buds, it is possible to suspect, but not to make a final value judgment until we have also assessed its flavor and effect.
QUALITY ODORLESS BUDS. DO THEY EXIST?
There are some very popular and considered quality varieties whose aroma is more subtle. These varieties are very popular among those people who choose self-cultivation but do not want to raise suspicions among their neighbors. We are talking about varieties such as White Rhino or Blue Mystic, both strains very popular among the followers but, nevertheless, characterized by a soft and discreet smell. And although they present strong odorless buds, their presence and flavor never disappoint.
Another variety, this time rich in CBD, that has a mild but pleasant citrus smell would be our Lemon CBD. The aroma of this variety may not surprise you, but the surprise will undoubtedly come with its unmistakable and appetizing flavor. Its discreet scent is only for your experience to grow.
WHAT SHOULD A BUD SMELL LIKE?
It is important to keep in mind that a bud can smell little or a lot but its smell must always be that familiar aroma that we have talked about previously. We can find buds without exaggerated odor, and as we have previously commented, in that case, we will assess its flavor and its effect, but if the aroma of the bud is unfamiliar and slightly reminds us of hay or, we could say, ‘ ‘to farm’ ‘, then, definitely, we do not have in our hands a quality flower.
Although there are already companies that say they are working on a new variety that will present odorless buds, we cannot fail to mention that part of the charm of this magical plant is in its personal smell, unmistakable and adorning many of our memories. Without this aroma, part of the charm will undoubtedly be lost.
